The Ministry for the Environment will prepare a report to the Minister for Climate Change Issues on any submissions received on the Draft Fishing Allocation Plan.
The Minister will consider the report on submissions and if satisfied with the consultation will recommend to the Governor-General that a final Fishing Allocation Plan is issued. The Governor-General will then issue the final Fishing Allocation Plan.
Submissions on the Draft Fishing Allocation Plan close at 5.00 pm on Monday 26 April 2010.
